Dancing with Matt

You probably don't know who Matt Harding is. But I bet you've seen his videos.

Matt's the guy who visits countless countries across the globe to do a little five second dance. I'm actually not entirely sure we can call it a dance; it's a bit more like a jig, or as a nameless colleague said, "he's really just running in place". Judge for yourself by watching here.

Matt's making another video and he swung by Hong Kong. And while he was here, we had to get him on News Stream to tell us his story... and we couldn't resist having him do a little dance with us.

After the interview I went down to Matt's actual dance location on the Hong Kong waterfront. The turnout surprised him; there were easily over a hundred people there, including a man dressed in a Mario outfit who Matt immediately pointed at and said: "You, my friend, will get me sued."

What was more interesting was how Matt lays out his legal terms. As you might imagine, trying to get about a hundred people to sign a legal release form isn't all that easy. Doing it on every stop of a 60+ country tour sounds like some sort of twisted torture. So Matt came up with a more unique way to get everyone's approval. Check it out.
